Murphy occasionally lifts his leg now (not very high) but you can tell he’s doing it. Isn’t he a bit young for puberty (he was 6 months old yesterday (Monday)????
no – he is not too young – he can father puppy’s, is aware of the sexual urge, will start to want to be the boss, will revert back to being a small pup one minute and think he’s a dog of the world the next – in fact, just like a teenage boy.
age? – it varies between dogs and breeds – in my opinion i have always found that the working breeds of herders and hunters reach puberty earlier than others – no scientific back up just experience – do you agree with that Val?
